GREENWICH - Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei held a meeting with town leaders and school officials today to discuss ways to prevent teen drinking in the future.

The meeting comes after five teenagers were taken to the hospital for showing up intoxicated at a teen center dance over the weekend.

Tesei says this wasn't the first time teenagers were intoxicated at an Arch Street Teen Center event. He discussed ways to make sure it never happens again during the meeting at Greenwich Town Hall on Field Point Road today.

Tesei tells News 12 Connecticut that two of the teens involved already came forward and are facing penalties. Officials say all of the teens were treated and released from the hospital.
